Assigning Grades
One point distribution is calculated:
POINT DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT OPTIONAL FINAL: Calculate
the distribution of points that all students have BEFORE
taking final.
Assign grades using this distribution so that there are
approximately 15% A's, 50% B's and 35% C's,

Assigning Grades
Two point distributions are calculated:
1: POINT DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT OPTIONAL FINAL: Calculate
the distribution of points that all students have BEFORE
taking final (same as for those skipping optional final).
Assign POTENTIAL grades using this distribution
so that there are approximately 15% A's, 50% B's and 35%
C's,


2: POINT DISTRIBUTION WITH OPTIONAL FINAL: Calculate
the distribution of points that ALL students have
AT COMPLETION OF COURSE.
This distribution includes points earned by those skipping
the final and points earned by those taking the final (which
includes points on final only if they are higher than those
on second midterm).
Assign POTENTIAL grades using this distribution
so that there are approximately 15% A's, 50% B's and 35%
C's.
